In the Director’s Chair with Martin Scorsese: RESULTS


Sure, it may have not seemed like a perfect series of films to watch, but I did enjoy seeing Scorsese perfect his craft through these earlier releases of his. Not only that, but I got to see a young Robert De Niro hone his talent as well over the course of a decade (early 70s to early 80s). The quality of these films is that of a roller coaster, with the best being saved for last. Each of them, while dealing with similar themes, dealt in different genres, and while Scorsese was feeling his way around those different areas of storytelling, he always ensured a memorable moment or two. Hopefully I dip back into his wheelhouse once more…
